Leaf Pendant with Double Dangle Pearl on Long Chain
Using upcycled bicycle inner tube, motorcycle inner tube, reclaimed leather, stainless steel and real freshwater pearls I created the Lively Leaf collection. My designs are influenced by the tension between the natural and man made. The black rubber and cool stainless steel reference industrial design and leather has a rebellious feel. I love how they contrast and balance with the soft and delicate white freshwater pearls.
